Enhanced Air Cooperation (EAC) was announced as an initiative in February 2017.

EAC includes a program of engagement between the Royal Australian Air Force and US air elements, aiming to deepen air-to-air integration that allows for seamless operation and delivers security and stability across the Indo-Pacific region.

Activities include:

  • Integration of advanced and combined warfighting capabilities
  • Collaborative airbase operations and combat support
  • Cooperation with air-power enabling capabilities
  • Collaborative logistics supporting airpower
  • Bilateral regional engagement.

EAC provides opportunities to enhance Australia and US engagement with regional partner air forces through involvement in exercises and training activities.
